2019 Moab Easter Jeep Safari Concepts
Easter Jeep Safari consists of trail rides, mostly daylong trips, departing from Moab, Utah, throughout the nine-day-long event. Each year, Jeep produces several special concept vehicles to take to the event.
“The Moab Easter Jeep Safari provides the perfect venue to interact with and gather feedback from our most loyal and passionate customers – the diehard off-road enthusiasts who attend the event each year,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Jeep Brand – North America. “This year’s Safari will mark the debut of the highly anticipated all-new Jeep Gladiator on Moab’s scenic and demanding trails. To celebrate, we are showcasing six fun and ultra-capable new truck-based Jeep concept vehicles that are certain to turn heads and delight the crowd.”
In terms of automotive news, today is annually our favorite date of the year. Sure, breaking news from the Auto Shows of new models that will be on sale to the public are great, but we can’t get enough of awesome concept Jeeps that you’ll never be able to purchase. That makes Easter Jeep Safari Concept day just like Christmas around here, as six new models have been unveiled and added to the epic collection that Jeep has produced over the years. While we would have preferred a bit more variety, we can’t deny that this crop of concepts is amazing as always. We can’t wait to see them in person when we head to Moab next week for the Easter Jeep Safari with our friends at BFGoodrich Tires.
The Jeep Wayout concept is a true overlanding vehicle that takes advantage of the all-new Gladiator’s class-leading payload to allow adventure-seekers to go far off the beaten path. The Jeep Wayout is a functional concept that showcases a full roof-top tent and custom, large sprawling canopy.
Designed with the desert lifestyle in mind, the Jeep Flatbill concept is another fun look at the all-new Gladiator, mixed with the extreme thrills of the Motocross world resulting in an unmistakable, loud and rowdy appearance that serves as the ultimate hauler for an array of toys.
Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter
Continuing the Easter Jeep Safari tradition of “Resto-Mods” comes the Jeep M-715 Five-Quarter that is a seamless blend of vintage and modern components. The term “Five-Quarter” is a historical nod to Jeep trucks of the past that were one-and-one-quarter tons or “five quarters.”
The Jeep J6 concept is all truck, all the time, mixing the classic Jeep truck styling of the late 1970s with prototype and production Jeep Performance Parts from Mopar.
Jeep JT Scrambler
The Jeep JT Scrambler concept is a heritage-inspired remix, carrying the throwback color palette and graphics of the iconic CJ Scrambler crossed with a combination of available Jeep Performance Parts and conceptual touches.
Jeep Gladiator Gravity
The rock-climber-themed Jeep Gladiator Gravity concept is elevated with a full complement of available-at-launch Jeep Performance Parts from Mopar to help equip those who have a desire to reach greater heights.
